13 College Attendance and Persistence: DP Students vs. Control Group ** = p-value< 0.01, * = p-value<0.05, ~ = p-value<0.10 Note: Students in this figure graduated between 2003 and 2007. They represent all students who enrolled in the ‘pre-IB’ programme in the 9th grade and then enrolled in the formal 11th grade DP, as well as a set of matched students with similar characteristics.
